ANTS! How do I get rid of them?

Posted by   + Show Post

We've been having an ant problem lately so I wiped the kitchen clean up and down and now I walked in today and they are in the kitchen pantry!  How do I get rid of this heavy amount of ants ASAP?  They're everywhere!  Please help!

 I heard that about cinnamon too! But if they are that bad, get spray or traps.

For the little sugar ants (it doesnt work on the big carpenter ants) we set out TERRO ant trays and you see MORE of them for a day or two and then they are completely gone bc they take the sweet poison and carry it back to their colony and feed it to everyone and it kills the whole colony it works really well and FAST

Where can I get them?  Are they safe for pets?  Because I have a dog.

It's what I use in the kitchen. Smells good too.

Quoting dizzy77702:

I know this sounds crazy, but i've heard that ants won't cross a trail of nutmeg or cinnnamon, so if you have some in the house put a line of it that they won't cross.  If you try it and it works let me know bc someone told me about this and I've yet to try it.  Good luck!
